The benefits of membership

 

Membership in the ITF Association provides the opportunity to directly influence the direction of WCB policy, legislation and application. 

Individual members also benefit from valuable networking opportunities with WCB, Appeals Commission and government officials, as well as other Association members. 

 

Members participate in an active network of professions with backgrounds in a wide range of disciplines including human resources, disability management, health & safety and operational management. This broad based membership brings together individuals with extensive knowledge and expertise in WCB matters, and who routinely share leading edge information and best practice from an employer perspective.

In addition to networking opportunities, members receive timely communication on issues impacting workers compensation and have access to ITF Association resources and member development opportunities.

Richard Gerow:

Having direct access to the CEO, COO, CFO and Board of Directors (of WCB) is invaluable, and I have personally spent time with each of these individuals to discuss my concerns and questions.  Having the ability to talk directly to the people who are making decisions which affect our business unit is unprecedented and an extremely valuable tool when we come up against a problem, or wish our voice to be heard…
